London: British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw on Sunday said he is horrified at the killing of 27 innocent people by militants in Jammu on Saturday night. ''I am horrified at this attack on innocent civilians,'' Straw who is due to arrive in India on July 19 as part of continuing diplomatic efforts to ease Indo-Pak tensions, said. ''Terrorism be it in Jammu, Kashmir or anywhere else only serves to renew the determination of the free world to fight the evil,'' he was quoted as saying by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
